Proposition J

On poison pills slipped into San Francisco’s ballot propositions

Kayla Kuhn, SF Public Press — Nov 2 2010 - 2:20pm

So-called poison pills are written into two measures on the current ballot to nullify an opposing proposition in the event that both are voted in. Also known as wrecking measures, they are created by a legislator who disagrees with another proposition and wants to undermine it. Ballot propositions cannot be amended. This year there are two dueling pairs: Proposition K would nullify J, and Proposition M would nullify L.

And they want politicians to pay attention. “There is nothing more important we can do than advancing art in America,” said Randy Cohen, vice president of local arts advancement at Americans for the Arts. He said the arts have a large impact on job creation and state and local government revenue.
